At Burman, we aim to use the pupil premium in creative ways to maximise the benefit for vulnerable learners in our school, in order to close the gaps in learning, educational experiences and progress.
We are committed to early intervention and have always extended our pupil premium support to nursery to include the younger siblings of vulnerable learners in main school.
We have carefully planned a variety of ways to provide support and help as many children as possible reach their full potential. These methods include:
- Extra teaching assistant support in all year groups, to focus on reading, phonics and writing
- Extra reading at lunchtime to boost progress for pupil premium children
PE and sport premium for primary schools
At Burman we have used our Sports Funding to enhance our provision and extend opportunities throughout school. This has been through:
- Multi skills provision
- Football skills
These extra lessons are provided by our regular after school club staff. They know our school well and fully support our expectations of attitudes, behaviour & safety.
We also use these sessions as a professional development opportunity for staff who are then able to extend their own skills.
Staff also have the opportunity to observe children and assess their abilities in order to inform future teaching.
